In the Know: The Latest Trends in Vape Technology
Vaping has evolved quickly over the years. Here's what to look for in the new year.
The Evolution of Vape Technology
The History of Vaping - Where did it all begin?
The oldest known patent for an electronic vaporizer was granted in 1927. However, it was never commercialized. Again in the 1960s, another patent was applied for with possible prototypes, but nothing came of it either. Eventually, in the late 1970s, computer pioneer Phil Ray (who invented the microprocessor) worked with his physician to develop the first mainstream “e-cigarette” and performed the first formal research on alternative nicotine delivery systems. The pair is known for introducing the word “vape” into the language. In 1986, the Favor e-cigarette came onto the market. It wasn’t technically electronic but was a plastic tube resembling a cigarette that delivered liquid nicotine once inhaled.
Many experimental smoking alternatives began popping up afterward and throughout the 1990s when the first battery-powered vapes came onto the scene. In 2003 the first e-cigarette, most similar to what we know today, came onto the market. Around this time, the first desktop vaporizers and, eventually, portable herbal vaporizers started showing up in smoke shops as they quickly gained popularity among users, allowing for a much smoother and more consistent delivery of herbal products.
How have vaporizers changed over the years?
There are also more options for customizable devices, allowing users to tailor their vaping experience to their individual preferences. Additionally, many devices now offer integrated safety features, such as short-circuit protection and auto shut-off, to ensure a safe and enjoyable vaping experience.

What are the latest vape trends to look for in 2023?
Vaporizers and vaping technology have developed and improved quickly, especially over the last few years. We can still expect tech advancements and new trends to take center stage in the coming years. Here is what to expect in 2023.
Disposable vape pens will become even more popular
New heating technology will change the game for temperature control
More vape kits will come with built-in batteries
All-in-one devices are much better for the environment. They are quickly becoming a preferred option for people looking for a device that they don’t have to replace the battery or worry about losing necessary parts. Manufacturers can now make smaller devices that are just as powerful, if not more, than other vapes. You’ll see vapes with internal batteries more and more over the next year.
